New Netflix Original Movies Take Over the Top 10

US Marshals, Happy Gilmore, den of thievesand Gentlemen have all been solid hits for the streamer lately. That changed on Thursday with the arrival of two new Netflix Originals, both of which immediately hit the top two spots on the list.
Thursday’s edition of Netflix’s Top 10 Movies list features two new titles at the top. The first is a documentary titled Our fatherwhich is the latest in a series of savage true crime stories to become a hit on the streaming service.

In second place is the new war movie titled Ground Meat Operation, which tells the true story of a British intelligence mission during World War II. The film stars Colin Firth and Succession star Matthew Macfadyen. Both of these films were added to Netflix last week, and it didn’t take long for them to catch on with subscribers here in the United States.
